Snowy Day in State College 2/18/14 - artvbal

To be clear, the snowfall was about to end, as I decided to take a stroll through the streets of State College. Also, a bit before the particular snowfall, there was another, more powerful one, and the accumulation from it was still present as well.


Those nice signs that make State College to stand out a bit from other towns in Pennsylvania surely were not designed with a snow in mind....


The pedestrian traffic was almost absent, but various service providers were working as usual - here is the van that belongs to WindStream - a provider of business level broadband network access.

A nice way to keep your bike to dry in most weather conditions.

Looks like State College Borough decided to roads ultra clean all the way - I call this ideology "leave no stone unturned".

Those bikes covered with snow made for a quite surrealistic look...

This house, which is hardly noticeable during the summer months, had much more exposed look...

Ah, here comes the secret reason to clean all the way to the surface those pedestrian lines...

Coming by central streets of State College - wintery look as here, - too bad it won't stay that way for long.

As I passed through the center of the city, I momentarily stopped by Hammond Engineering Building in Penn State campus, and here it was mysterious monument that to my liking looked even better with all the snow around it.

Leaving Penn State campus and going back to living neighborhoods - that crossing is usually pretty busy, but not today, and once again gas station looks so much more attractive with all the snow around.

Ah, looks like somebody did not want to clean their driveway properly to get recycling bins there, and now someone will have trouble boarding the bus here...

Back on the central streets of town - brave bicyclist come to eat hot Chinese soup or not....

Operation "Leave no stone unturned" is still underway....

Ah, here comes pedestrian line cleaner...

Back at living neibourhoods I spot some heavy machinery doing some snow cleaning. Ironically, few days late most of the even untouched snow will be melted...
